Do I sense a war brewing. Their are going to be a lot of pissed of people if they cannot download the last episode of lost or a syndicated television show. Think about this for a second, when I was living overseas the television selections was horrendous, you had this pathetic star network and a bunch of third rate crap stations. TV was horrible. My time overseas also broke me of my habit of watching to much TV because the majority of it was terrible. But for those that are living as expats the ability to get cool shows via BitTorrent is awesome. Now I understand the studios have a issue with this and I understand that they don’t want people sharing movies. So here is a idea.
The studios need to realize their audience is global and unless all of the people on the globe can go to new movies or pay for them online when they are released the horns come out and people go and download the shows and movies so they can see it instead of having to wait 6 months to year before something is released in their home country. News travels the globe in microseconds not weeks and people are dialed in to what is happening on a global scale. If the MPAA and the studios would figure this out instead of using their old techniques old media distribution which encourages people to download the content on the net. [The Register]
